Azare Dear Joni,
Belvidere I have a story about Henry Dean who came to our yoga class – Yoga Heart Studio – owner Selise Stewart. Henry knocked on Selise’s door and said he would like to learn yoga. Henry was 89 when he asked that question. He is now 91, soon to be 92 in August, and comes two days a week and had Selise set up a home practice for him. He is the most amazing, wonderful, brave person we have known. He is a true inspiration to all of us. You should see him, the yoga has totally changed his life. He use to live in the Tanglewood/Memorial area and now is living a full life at the Buckingham. Most of Selise’s students live in the memorial/Tanglewood area. Anyone who tells me that they cannot do yoga because they are not flexible I say let me tell you about Henry Dean. I feel this would be an uplifting and great story to share while giving courage to senior citizens to step out of their comfort zone.
Yoga Heart Studio is a wonderful place to learn and practice yoga. Selise is a knowledgeable, thoughtful teacher with heart and patience. Her classes have helped me improve my alignment, strength and flexibility over the years. She also has wonderful teachers at her studio who provide complementary services to yoga. I highly recommend Yoga Heart Studio!
